Planning Your Next Vacation?

Meet the Stone family. They were planning their Cape Ann vacation with one of the giant online booking companies until they saw the price and were stunned at the high fees. After a little more research to find a short-term vacation rental, they found Atlantic Vacation Homes. After speaking with one of AVH's experienced and knowledgeable Guest Experience Specialists, the Stone family learned about the value of #BookDirect and so they did with AVH.

What is #BookDirect?

By now we’ve all seen this phrase floating around the internet encouraging travelers to "Book Direct" but what exactly does this popular phrase mean? "Book Direct" is the Vacation Rental Industry equivalent to "Shop Local;" it means you go straight to the source and skip paying middleman service fees. At Atlantic Vacation Homes, we have intimate knowledge of each vacation rental property that we represent. With our selective inventory of vacation rental homes in the Cape Ann area, we are sure you’ll be able to find the perfect rental for your next getaway on Boston's North Shore.

Local Expertise. Personalized Service. Best Price.

Our team of local vacation rental specialists located in Gloucester, Massachusetts is here to assist you during every step of the booking process. We offer an easy online booking experience but unlike those online travel agencies (like Airbnb, VRBO, and others), we also provide a personal touch that cannot be matched. When you call Atlantic Vacation Homes, our locally-based team answers the phone and is eager to help you navigate the booking process.

We are there to assist you every step of the way! From the selection of your perfect Cape Ann vacation rental and the planning of your trip to our in-house maintenance team that is there to help with any issues that may occur during your stay. We are here to make your vacation rental experience as easy and relaxing as possible.

When you book directly with Atlantic Vacation Homes, you bypass the additional service fees that online travel agencies tack on and you ALWAYS get the best rate possible. When you book your vacation rental through a professional property management company such as ours, you can rest assured that the home you are renting is in great condition. We take extreme pride in each of the properties that are in our vacation rental program.

Top 5 Reasons to Book Direct:

  • Support a local business.

  • You'll stay in a professionally managed home and have a responsive local team to assist you.
  • Direct communication with the local team that will be helping you before, during, and after your stay.
  • You'll get first-hand local area knowledge and get great recommendations on what to do, where to eat, and more.
